Food Pantry

In an effort to help students focus more on succeeding in school and less on where their next meal is coming from, Cypress College is happy to offer Food Pantry services throughout the school year.

The Food Pantry aims to address the basic needs of our students by collecting and distributing non-perishable food items, educating the campus community about hunger and food insecurity issues, and collaborating with others to connect students with additional resources on and off campus.

Cypress College is offering on-campus “drive-through” food distribution once a week each Wednesday at 9 a.m.-12 p.m.

Students will receive one large bag of select non-perishable and fresh food items that are delivered to the campus on the day before our distribution. Additional personal hygiene items may be requested or made available upon request if in stock.

Registration will open every Thursday and close the following Monday at 11:59 p.m. To help our efforts in managing inventory, a weekly reservation will be required to access this service every visit. After registration, you will receive a confirmation number and details including the location of the distribution.


The Cypress College Food Pantry accepts donations of non-perishable food and other items—such as canned goods, cereal, pasta, pasta sauce, and more—throughout the school year. Please drop them off in the Student Activities Center.
